Here is something different in adventure hotels. If you are looking for something different, this is for you.
This hotel is for the truly adventurous. With 90 ft. high walkways, surrounded by sharks and constantly hit by hurricanes. It’s the perfect destination for adventurous scuba divers.
This place is called Frying Pan Tower. It sits 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina. It was originally a remote lighthouse platform.
The lighthouse platform is located in a shallow area of the Atlantic called the Frying Pan Shoals. This is an area where ships were constantly running aground and sinking. As a lighthouse it protected ships from running aground in the shallow areas where it stands.
With the development of modern-day navigation technology it’s use as a lighthouse was no longer needed. Therefore, it became unused and dilapidated.
After a number of years, the Frying Pan Lighthouse was put up for auction by the US Coast Guard and auctioned off for $85k.
Its new owners decided to convert it to one of the world’s most unique and adventurous destinations in the middle of the ocean.
Surrounded by sharks and all types of marine life. It is the perfect destination for scuba divers looking for something completely different above and below the surface.
